Personal Attention & Counseling
The Yeshiva is also known for its personal attention and counseling that it gives it students. Students are coming from many different places in the world and are in various stages in their growth and lives. The Rabbis are there to help guide them personally through these stages. Students who are coming from homes that were not religious especially need that special guidance in this crucial time in their lives.
We have Rabbis who are available for meeting one on one with students Sunday-Wednesday to discuss what is on their hearts & minds.
Rabbi Micha Hyman is available to speak with students in the afternoon hours three days a week.
Rabbi Chaim Cohen is available to speak with students in the afternoon hours three days a week.
Rabbi Oren Halevy is available to speak in the morning, afternoon, & evening hours four days a week.
Rabbi Netanel Frankenthal is available to speak in the evening hours after classes.
Students will always feel like they have someone to speak with while they are in their growth process.
